This is what I've been getting when I use the built in Mail apps on both my iPhone and iPad:

There are two problems with this. First, it only hyperlinks up to the ".php" and gets cut off from the "?" on. Second, even weirder, the true link is suppose to be ".php?t=174211&goto". It deletes the "=17" from the link, so I can't even copy and paste the entire link into a browser.

The same email shows the proper link on my MacBook mail app and when I log onto Gmail through Safari on my iPad (as opposed to using the built in Mail app) the link is OK too. So it is clearly some issue with the iOS Mail app. I haven't yet tested to see if it is exclusive to Gmail though. I'll try switching my notification email address to see.

Here's another one:

I thought maybe there was some coding issue with the "?" causing the Mail app to want to cut the hyperlink underlining off before it, but this email hyperlinked the "?t" as well then cuts of the rest.

This link was suppose to read ".php?t=226450&goto", so in this example it deletes the "=22", but this time replaces it with a quotation mark.

Very odd. Is this happening on everyone else's iDevices?

Also, I tried creating a new email, then I manually typed one of the links in the email, and then without actually creating a hyperlink, I sent it off. I then checked my iPad and the link appeared hyperlinked and correct. So it also seems to have something to do with receiving the emails from ExplorerForum.

Edit: Also, the initial email from ExplorerForum, the one that is received screwed up on my iPad but correct on my laptop - if I forward the email to myself, the forward then appears correct on the iPad. So for some reason it is not liking the initial email from ExplorerForum.

No one else has reported this. The initial email is straight HTML. Just the most basic tags.:dunno:

Email links are coming in fine on my iphone..

Its a 3gs, running 4.01 IOS (was running 3.12 until last week).

My built in mail app is linked to a gmail apps account.

I wonder if its actually not the IOS, but the mail server that is doing that (like gmail or hotmail etc).
